To the Editor,

Congratulations on an editorial very well done concerning the recalcitrant Republican position on the Affordable Care Health Act, which President Obama based part of his campaign on and received the go-ahead from voters to pursue (“Time for GOP to listen to the American People” Oct. 6, 2013).

The editorial was clear, logical, sensible, and easy for any layman like me to follow. And thanks for bringing your editorial to a local level with a very correct assessment of Howard Coble’s position on the issue. It’s good to know that in a Republican stronghold, as Surry has become, we still can get logic, reason, and truth from our local newspaper.
